RIP Lenny

Earlier this week we received a text from our friend saying Lenny went to the Rainbow Bridge. If you remember this past summer Lenny had some serious health problems. Lenny and his humans did their best to celebrate these last months together; he was pampered, cuddled and loved to the very end. The hardest part is naturally for those of us left behind.

I have recently been playing with my interpretation of dachshund iconography, and having fun with repetition, patterns and rhythm. I feel like the only thing better than one picture of our dachshund is a canvas filled with multiple images of our darling hounds.

If any dachshund friend wants to make a tax-deductible donation in Lenny’s name a personalized condolence postcard will be mailed to his family. I especially like these cards because they make for a great keepsake. This tradition seems to be popular in our community since we first started it a few years back. When our doxies pass, all we have are our memories and pictures. With your help Lenny’s family can have a few more pictures and know they’re not alone during this difficult time. My only request, in order to make it cost efficient for the charity, please ensure your donation is $10 or more which includes original artwork, postage, delivery and labor. I do believe these postcards are better and more personalized than a casserole or flowers.

Lenny we loved you and enjoy our time together. Rest in peace sweet Lenny and peace be with your humans.
